Summary: This is how good all Game Boy Advance RPGs should be. Quite simply, it's one of the best. This game has set the standard for me in relationship to how a game should look on the Game Boy Advance. I was blown away at how great things looked on my tiny screen. You play the role as the hero, and start out as a young boy growing up the town of Vale. Through some crazy circumstances, you start out to defend the realm and stop an evil force from lighting the elemental towers.
Pros: Great Graphics, Excellent character development, Plenty of game time â 25+ hours
Cons: Only part of the Golden Sun Story, Lots of peons to mow through
Excerpt: In the early Middle Ages, mastery of alchemy
was often sought after as a quick means to an end. The most common of
these goals included wealth, well-being, and the creation of human
life. Many moons ago, it was written off as mendacity and those who
practiced alchemy were condemned as heretics and burned at the stake.
If you are taking any of this as historical fact and using the material
to study for an exam, do not expect to score much higher than a 16%.
Excerpt: I know a lot of gamers who still doesn't own a Gameboy Advance. I would say the main reason is that they haven't seen that ONE game that really excites them. Before I started playing this game I was actually warned. "If you like role-playing games and start playing this game you will loose thirty hours". So, what happened? Oh, I'll tell you all about it.
Summary: Camelot's shiny new RPG has hit the shelves. Find out what PGC's resident RPG-guru thinks of it.
Pros: Beautifully detailed graphics, Clever use of Pysnergy, Great character designs, Ingenious Djinn system shows other RPGs how things should be done, Music that puts the SNES and in even some cases the PSX to shame, Rich mythic world
Cons: How could Camelot overlook that battle error?, Plot is a bit slow in the beginning, Speech "beeps" can be annoying, though they can thankfully be turned off
Conclusion: Overall, a tremendous and exceptionally high quality RPG for the GBA. and today it still retains the unrivalled position of the best of the best (including Pokemon). Golden Sun ‘s graphics are unparalleled as is its musical score. If only Pokemon would have utilised the same graphics engine, rather than a slightly updated Game Boy engine. The world of Weyard is an epic land to explore, and hopefully, you will take up the challenge to save it from certain ruin.
Excerpt: O Gameboy Advance foi uma plataforma que infelizmente me passou ao lado e consequentemente grande parte dos seus jogos. Como fã de RPGs foi talvez uma grande falha. Desde excelentes remasterizações de jogos 16-bit como Final Fantasy VI até jogos como Fire Emblem e Tales of Phantasia passando por Golden Sun , a oferta deste estilo na portátil da Nintendo era imensa.
Pros: Excelentes gráficos que se mantêm actuais | Bom sistema de combate
Cons: Opções de diálogo inúteis que muitas vezes só atrapalham
Excerpt: É o melhor cartucho para o Game Boy Advance. Tão simples quanto isso! Cada vez gostamos mais da pequena portátil! É um facto! E Golden Sun é um dos grandes responsáveis pelo estado de enlevo em que nos encontramos. A Camelot deu vida a um cartuchinho que entrou directamente para o nosso top de role-plays predilectos. Outra coisa não seria de esperar, ou os seus criadores não fossem os mesmos responsáveis por diversos episódios do genial Shining Force.
